Visit one of the finest Norman cathedrals in Europe
Explore Peterborough Cathedral, its exquisite architecture and the resting place of Henry VIII’s first Queen, Katharine of Aragon.
As a former Benedictine monastery, the 12th century Cathedral’s majestic architecture, cloisters and precincts offer a tranquil oasis in the heart of a vibrant city. The lawn in front of the Cathedral is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic on a sunny day.
Take a guided tour of the Cathedral and discover Mary Queen of Scots’ first burial place and the unique, medieval painted wood ceiling in the Nave. Or brave the heights on a tower tour, getting up close to the stained glass and viewing the city from above.
Those looking for some private contemplation should seek out the quiet corners of the Cathedral, or experience the intimacy of Evensong or Evening Prayer in the choir stalls at the end of every day.
